Once upon a time, three little fairies lived on three stars, near the moon.
The three fairies came down on earth early in the mornings to help anyone who needed their help.
Then at night time, they went to the moon and told him about their good deeds.
And the moon allowed the one who had done the best and greatest job of all to sleep on his lap and swing there.
One night, the three fairies sat beside the moon; to tell him about the good jobs they had done that day. But no matter how long the moon waited, none of them said a word. The moon said; Well, tell me something!
Have they down some good jobs on that day , will they be able to sleep on the Moon's lap?
